‘Good-bye, My Fancy’ with Joan Crawford and Robert Young: NCC Film
March 1 @ 6:30 pm
Good-bye, My Fancy is the next film in the free NCC film series for winter/spring 2018, which will screen on Thursday, March 1 at 6:30 p.m. in the East Campus Forum Theater.
In an era loaded with films that featured roles for women that were complex, nuanced, and quite challenging, evidenced by the work of Elizabeth Taylor, Joanne Woodward, Barbara Stanwyck and Kate Hepburn, Good-bye, My Fancy features the immortal Joan Crawford in one of her best-ever roles.

This little-seen film from 1951 was directed by the talented Vincent Sherman and features Crawford as a congresswoman who returns to her alma mater to receive an honorary degree.
Did I mention that her old boyfriend will also be there, who also happens to be the college president? Conflict, anybody? Oh, yeah.
The film co-stars include Robert Young, as the old beau, the always-annoying Frank Lovejoy, as a pain-in-the-butt newspaperman, and the always sassy and delightful Eve Arden as — Eve Arden.
Don’t miss this entertaining and in some ways surprisingly progressive (when it’s not being retrogressive) romantic drama from the not-so-fabulous fifties!
- Editor’s note: The main character appears to be a lot like U.S. Rep. Clare Boothe Luce, who represented Darien and other area communities in the House from 1943 to 1947, a few years before this movie was made.
